upset victory? let's find out. robert gibbs is a political analyst and former press secretary under president obama. and david corn is an msnbc political analyst and washington bureau chief at mother jones. robert, you know better about him than most people. you've worked with him in tight situations. i hope you got to see our program last night. we had a huge audience of 1.3 million. it's a big audience of people who tuned in just to hear the president. even on a night when so many hearts and minds were focused on the lives of nelson mandela. they took some time out to watch our program with the president. he said at that time when i asked him how do you do big deals and he said history says you only get a big program through when one party controls the government. the house, the senate, and the presidency. does that mean to you he's still holding out hopes he can pull a big upset in the sixth year of his presidency next november? >> well, i was certainly struck by the answer in which he was reminding those college students that a lot of them that might vote in a presidential year

"w," years and years. this is under jim nicholson they were talking about doing this. this is not obama, and you can't have it both ways. the republicans cannot say why did we not pay attention to valid security concerns in benghazi, but now when there are valid security concerns in italy, we should disregard those and, you know, keeping a good face on having this big building. >> let's get back to charlie -- >> here's a question i have -- >> charlie, can you hear me? >> this is a good -- >> can you hear me? >> yes. >> charlie, let's play one of the things where you reverse the tape. suppose the embassy over there to the vatican got hit and it came out that they were thinking of putting it behind the protective walls of the italian embassy compound, it would have been much safer there, but they decided not to do it. who would have been blamed then? just a thought. >> right. of course. of course. consolidating is wise for security reasons, cost savings are needed everywhere. it's a no-brainer. all i'm talking about is the packaging on this. if you remember the remembra

this or putting up this notion somehow there was something done under the table here. something unconstitutional and unknown before this moment. >> sure. well, i think one of the criticisms that conservatives had is the obama administration has used its executive authority to tinker with the law in where they think congress should have a say. some of this criticism reaches well beyond logic. let's go back to sarah palin. the notion death panels are in there. the first she referred to was end of life consultations. that was stripped from the legislation because of the uproar she caused. it's not in there now. but years later she's acting as if it is. so there's a bit of lunacy to these criticisms. it's not based in fact at all. that's what clouds this debate. you don't know what are pure fabrications or gripes. >> don't you think party appeal, sam, of sarah palin is she doesn't give a rat's butt what the facts are. and i think that is her wild attraction. she's almost squirrely in that way that she wants to say wild things. we'll say that's not true. she'll just come back and say that's being tec

about obama, about -- and also just about kind of the nature of the country. the idea this is a christian nation under siege. and now people believe it. >> that's bottom line here. it seems to me our producers were talking today, it's not just who wins these primaries. and they'll end up republican. the danger is the republican you get in the senate will be an out right obstructionist. an incumbent has to go so far right that he'll be saying no to everything obama or anybody else offers for the next years. will come in as an absolute obstructionist. what does that do to our country when you have states that have marked themselves off for obstructionism? >> i mean, i think we're in a lot of trouble. in part because these aren't going to be like todd akins. a lot of cases, whoever wins the primary is going to win the election. and so this is just kind of a warning to all republicans that you can't compromise at all. that you can't -- i mean, one of the chris mcdaniel's points against thad cochran is he voted to end the shutdown. so don't vote to end the shutdown. >> i wa
